Is Your Vehicle Ready for Holiday Road Trips?

Is Your Vehicle Ready for Holiday Road Trips?

December is here! We welcome you to the Holiday season and hope your and your family have a festive, joyous plan this year.  Last month, we covered the best steps to take in getting your vehicle ready for winter. There’s excellent advice there about using live Bremeton traffic updates before you leave the house, to evaluate your route. We’d like to recommend that your take the initiative to map the route out ahead of time and plan pit stops for meals, bathroom breaks, and gas, too, so that you can accurately tell your kids if they ask the dreaded question, “How long til we get there” the actual time it will take you. Equally, with a little internet research, you can determine high-traffic peaks and avoid them by managing your pit stops to go with them. If you didn’t get your car winterized last month and are planning a holiday road trip, please consider coming into LK’s Auto Repair for a tune-up. There is so much that needs to be just right be ... read more
